Oh, I thought pwdump is fully supported in Johnny. But it turns out
that only LMs are loaded. It raises an interesting question: how
should it look like? Two hashes on 1 line? Two lines (bad case, see

It is not a "bug", it is just not implemented.

I am not sure that showing 2 hashes on 2 lines would be ok because
passwords of these hashes are connected: if password is shorter than
15 chars then LM has the same password as NT, if password is longer or
equal to 15 chars than only NT is used (LM is either LM with empty
password or not showed at all depending on dumping tool). LMs are not
case sensitive, so the common scenario is the following: crack LM,
then toggle case to find NT. So there is no need to separate LM and
